Thanks to Steve Hamptom for encouraging me to go into more detail with the battery hold down bracket.

While I always start with the battery I want to use and then build one to fit that battery, the original battery hold down is nice and can be made to fit a variety of batteries. Here are the original dimensions:

It is made from 15 mm × 15 mm angle iron. With 20 mm × 25 mm tabs spot welded in place to accept the hold down rods.
